November Success: My First $500 Month!

Last Update: December 01, 2016

Hi everyone! Today I'd love to share with you a big milestone that I've hit - $500 in a

month! :) Of course we all know that November is when the Black Friday promotions come to town and everybody goes shopping crazy. I think we all know what this means... affiliate HEAVEN.

I've been in the affiliate marketing game since August 2014, when I came across Wealthy Affiliate at the age of 13, so it's taken me a fair while to hit this mark. During my first year online, I didn't earn that much at all - but I LOVED doing it. However, if there's one thing I've learned about internet marketing, it's that your work at present pays off in the future. The posts that generate my the most revenue are the some of the ones I did within that first year online, when I didn't make much. Due to huge school work loads, I only ever had time to do a quality post every couple of weeks - I even went through a phase of not doing one for 3 months (okay, laziness was a factor in that as well). But due to the hard work I'd put in before, when 2016 came about I was starting to earn a passive income, my best before November being about $150 or so.



Then the sales started to explode in November, which completely hit me by surprise. I finished it at $522, going over the $500 on the last day of November which was great.

Why was this?


Well there were a few factors contributing to it:


  • Obviously Black Friday
  • The Amazon Associates 12% Native Ads Promotion.
  • Hitting the release of a game hard (my niche is gaming), resulting in a huge traffic spike.
  • Adding more opportunities for income

If you want to read any of my blogs about the Native Ads Promotion or my traffic spike, you can check them out here:

So if you're going to take anything away from reading this, DON'T get demotivated if you're not getting any rankings or income from your posts straight away, because the work you do now will pay off in the future.

We're in this together,

James
